I know this isn’t fine dining, but it is a way to support a couple of great causes, and their milkshakes are so pretty! Looking for a milkshake that will bring all the boys to your yard? Head to Toronto! They can teach you, but they’ll have to charge (less than $10!). We had the best milkshakes ever at Peace Treats in Toronto, Ontario, and they were like little celebrations in a cup. Peace Treats milkshakes were the last thing we picked up during our time in Toronto, and it was a great way to end our last day in the city. Despite ordering the “mini” size, which was still huge, we couldn’t make much of a dent in these bad boys.
If the mini size is this big, I’d love to see a micro milkshake that’s just a few bites, because that’s all I could eat. Despite these being absolutely delicious, they were just too sugary for me and my husband, and he is one who normally loves desserts. Is it wrong to love the experience of ordering and photographing a milkshake more than actually eating the entire thing? If it’s wrong, I suppose I don’t want to be right haha.
I ordered the Birthday Cake shake (the pink one) and Robin ordered the D.R.E.A.M. aka Donuts Rule Everything Around Me. My milkshake had a slice of birthday cake on it with a lit candle, and Robin’s had a powdered donut, a chocolate donut, and a scoop of chocolate ice cream on top. Both were so festive and delicious, but very sugary. So, if you’re looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth or sugar cravings, grab a friend or loved one and share a milkshake at Peace Treats – I’ve never had anything sweeter than these!
Peace Treats is part of a larger store that also sells clothing and accessories that benefit ethical causes like LGBTQ+ charities and feminist causes. So if you make a purchase in their store and grab a milkshake, you’re doing something sweet while eating something sweet – it’s a win-win. They also donate 2 meals and a snack to children in need in Toronto, so there’s no excuse not to stop by and support their causes.
I initially wrote about Toronto when we first visited about 3 years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long!), but I never wrote about this milkshake place, and my content was much more fashion-oriented. I loved these cities, Toronto in particular, and I want to share more of the wonderful things we saw, ate, and did so that when we can visit our Canadian friends again, travel planning will be much easier. With that in mind, I want to go back through my work about Toronto and Niagara Falls and rewrite the travel guides to make them more useful and more user-friendly. Keep an eye out for these updates, that I hope to have done in the next month or so.
Hopefully, we can all begin traveling again soon, and I won’t have to keep digging up old content to write about. There are so many new places I should have visited for work, and it’s just so disappointing that these plans and my job have been put on hold for so long, when it’s something I’m so passionate about. Although, I am trying to stay positive and keep myself from being too sad by focusing on improving old posts like the ones about Toronto & Niagara Falls, to make them better and more thorough. If I have so much time where I can’t travel, I might as well focus on what I can do and what I can control, right?
